Katia Guerreiro

Since the global success of her revelatory album Fado Major in 2001, Katia Guerreiro has embodied the original fado better than anyone and is recognised worldwide as the ambassador par excellence of Portuguese music.                                                     

Her work earned her the ‘Female Personality of the Year’ accolade in 2005, and she was also made a Member of the European Cultural Parliament, a position she still holds today.

In 2010, as she celebrated the 10th anniversary of her career as a singer, the Amália Rodrigues Foundation awarded her the prestigious ‘Best Fado Performer’ prize.

In 2013, she released her first live album, Katia-Live at the Olympia, and received the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres distinction from the French government, recognising her as a prominent representative of Portuguese culture.

In 2015, the President of the Portuguese Republic presented her with the Ordem do Infante D. Henrique for her contribution to promoting Portuguese culture. In Mexico, she was nominated for the Lunas del Auditorio prize for her concert at the Teatro de la Ciudad, acclaimed as one of the five best concerts of the year.

In 2016, Katia Guerreiro made her debut in the cinema in the film Alfama em Si, directed by Diogo Varela Silva, Amália Rodrigues’s nephew, with José Mário Branco as Musical Director.

Her latest album Sempre directed by José Mário Branco was released in February 2019.
